How much Aloe Vera Juice or Gel you should drink depends on your individual needs and preferences. Some people take as little as 2 tablespoons a day, while others consume an entire bottle a day. In our household, one person typically drinks a bottle in 2-4 days, though we sometimes have more just because we feel like it.
Why Some People Drink Tons of Aloe Vera Juice
- Health Issues – Aloe Vera has many properties that are beneficial to those suffering from various health problems. Aloe can alleviate symptoms of allergies, respiratory ailments, gingivitis, arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions. The antimicrobial properties of Aloe helps in prevention and recovery from bacterial and fungal infections.
- Digestive Health – Constipation, indigestion, heartburn, GERD, ulcers, and other digestive ills can benefit from Aloe consumption. Aloe reduces inflammation while helping you fight bacteria causing ulcers, which may be the underlying cause of acid reflux and stomachaches.
- Beautiful Skin – Aloe consumption triggers the production of collagen, the protein responsible for the firm, smooth look of youthful skin. You can improve the condition of your skin without resorting to invasive injections and laser treatments that can accelerate aging in the long run.
- Oral Hygiene – Swishing aloe around your mouth can drastically improve your oral hygiene. Aloe kills germs that cause cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease, while supplying your gums with healthy nutrients.
- Weight Loss – Nutrients in Aloe help increase metabolism while speeding food through your digestive tract so you burn more calories and absorb less. This, however, cannot compensate for lack exercise and frequent overindulgence.
- Overindulgence – Drinking Aloe before or after eating a fatty or unhealthy meal may minimize the damage with antioxidants. Oxidative stress from overeating can cause aging, and even stroke and heart attack.
- Blood Sugar & Blood Pressure Control – Some diabetics use Aloe to regulate blood sugar levels. Aloe naturally lowers blood pressure so it is beneficial to those with high blood pressure or arterial disease. However, do not substitute Aloe for insulin or medication without first consulting your doctor.
Why Some People Might Drink Less Aloe
- Low Tolerance – Unique body chemistry can make some people unusually sensitive to substances contained in Aloe Vera gel. Drinking too much may cause diarrhea, or other issues.
- Don’t Like the Taste – If you want the benefits of Aloe, but don’t like the way it tastes, you can just drink less, try a different flavor — Aloe Vera Juice, Aloe Berry Nectar or Forever Aloe Bits N’ Peaches — and/ or dilute and mix with fruit juice, honey, etc..
- Moderation – Aloe Vera contains hundreds of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and beneficial compounds that can help correct nutritional deficiencies or imbalances. Small quantities on a daily basis is a good way to supplement a healthy diet.
- Economy – If the cost of a bottle of Aloe Vera Gel or Juice is an issue, you can drink less and still receive some benefit. Also, consider signing up as a distributor to purchase at wholesale prices and make extra money by introducing the products to your friends and family.
